Oil Thefts Surge in Mexico As Cartels Become Specialized | TIME

For all the folks that say legalizing drugs will stop the cartels please read this article. This is also a issue with economic development for Mexico. Mexico even with the depressed market value, should be seeing a windfall of revenue to the tax base of Mexico to help them make life better for Mexicans. But it is suspected that corrupt Mexican officials can not get enough money from the oil transactions once it gets into the tax base. So they are helping the Cartels steal the oil for larger profits in a split with the Cartels. In any case the Oil needs to be a way to get a better life for the Mexican citizens, not what it has become, another Cartel Profit center.
